The call comes from USO Board member and Honor Flight official Karl Lund, who, in a Facebook post declares "All Hands on Deck." 

In Lund's post on the Greater St. Louis Honor Flight's Facebook page, he says "Robert will not be alone at his own funeral. We are all family and we will all be there."

Lund asks parents to pull their kids out of school for the Friday ceremony at 10 a.m. at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. ​

Wunderlich will be buried with military honors.
